Stadium: John Smith’s stadium
Odds: Huddersfield Town- 3.3, AFC Bournemouth- 2.37, Draw: 3.3
Match Day 30 of English Premier League will feature the match between Huddersfield and AFC Bournemouth at John Smith’s stadium. Both the teams are already familiar with their fate this season. This makes it one of the lowest profiles match of the weekend. The bottom positioned team with 14 points in the table needs some magic to get out of the relegation zone. Jan Siewert undertook a rather impossible task at the club after the departure of their former manager David Wagner. Eddie’s men, on the other hand, are placed comfortably in the mid-table with 34 points. They are 9 points clear of the relegation zone.
Both the teams are struggling this season making the match a perfect encounter between the two demoralized teams. The Cherries will come into this match after a one-nil defeat against the champions. They have now lost four and drawn one in their previous five fixtures. The Terriers lost the opportunity to gain few points against the minnows. They lost by a margin of a goal against Brighton. Jan’s men have lost four games and drawn one in their last six fixtures. The team had managed a win against the Wolves last week.
The two clubs have met 13 times until now out of which the club from Dean court won six times and lost three times against Huddersfield. Four matches failed to produce any result. Eddie Howe and team had won by two goals to one last time when these two teams had met at Dean Court this season.
Injured: Williams (knee injury), Duhaney (hip injury), Hogg (ribs injury), Diakhaby (hamstring injury), Mbenza (calf injury)
Doubtful: Depoitre (foot injury)
Injured: Stanislas (groin injury), S Cook (groin injury), L Cook (knee injury), Francis (knee injury)
Doubtful: Solanke (thigh injury), Wilson (knee injury)
It will be a difficult pick between the two teams looking at their forms. However, the quality of players Bournemouth has, gives them a slight edge over the club from John Smith stadium. Joshua King will play a primary role in the front if Eddie needs to gain all three points. In spite of being a low profile match, it will be undoubtedly a significant one for Huddersfield if they want to turn over any of their fortunes this season. The football fans around the world will definitely love to see another magic like Leicester city from the Terriers.
